BBQ season…

Grilled chicken drumsticks in self-made marinadeĀ 

preparation time:

ca. 35 minutes



ingredients for 2-4 people:

6-8 chicken legs
oil (e.g. thistle or hemp oil)
spices you like (e.g. southernwood, thyme, rosemary, juniper, etc.)
salt and pepper


Wash the chicken legs and dab them dry with kitchen paper. Mix the marinade with oil and spices in a bowl. Leave the chicken legs to draw.

Tip: If you would like to have the spices more “spicy” šŸ˜‰ buy them whole and pestle them in a mortar (see picture above).

The marinaded chicken legs can now be barbecued. If you have an oven with a grill function you can also grill them in the oven. It will take about 29 minutes until they are done.

A possible side dish to the drumsticks is rice + vegetables (you can find a food list here). Fresh salad, e.g. rocket or lettuce, radishes, etc. might work, too.
The usual barbecue sauces you can purchase should be avoided though. They often contain vinegar which is high in histamine. If the chicken drumsticks are too dry you might want to try some drops of maple syrup or some cream cheese to them instead.
